    You may have noticed the similarity between them.

    Now do board Search with this line: recently viewed your resume online

    Read and find very similar letters from: Instant Human Resources, Kasamba Careers, Toospoiled, Good Grade Zone, Impact Worldwide, Blue Star Careers, Princeton Consulting Affiliates, LaJeunesse, Dave Mason Power Seller, Employee News Wire, ENW Jobmatch, Applications Inc, Corbin Watson, Palmer Employment, New Media Inc., Kray Group, Grey Marketing Team.

    And more http://search.yahoo.com/search?ei=UT...+resume+online

    From what I have read, all this spam is sent by a scammer named Ayman Ahmed El-Difrawi or Alec Defrawy.

    This is real fascinating stuff. Like a puzzle, shattered all over the Internet.

    Re: Companies from Monster.com

    I replied to Kasamba and Palooza with my resume. Somehow I found my self desparate for a responce from any employer and sent my resume without doing any background check. But I did notice that these two sites were identical and that the responce letters were identical, almost exactly, from the human resources department. That tipped me off to do a google search on them and voila I find Scam.com I overlooked the low level of sofistication of the site for legitimacy. Be careful.
